Dear Parents and Carers
What a fabulous couple of weeks!
Last week we sent off 24 shoeboxes packed with goodies for some of the neediest children in the world. These were sent through ‘Operation Christmas Child’. Thank you so much for sending in so many wonderful items for inclusion in the boxes.
We also ran a ’Children in Need’ day. Our pupils were allowed to turn up in whatever clothes they liked (within reason!). They each paid £1 for the privilege. These funds were boosted by the generosity of our taxi drivers and escorts. The final sum we raised for Children in Need was £208.63.
We have allocated £58.50 pence raised from our tuckshop to our African child fund. With that money, we are paying for an African child to attend school every day and enjoy at least one decent meal every lunchtime.
Two classes of children have just raised another £40 for our African child fund by spending an hour in the carpark washing staff cars and bicycles.
This is a magnificent effort and shows how much our children care about other children in need of our love and support.
